About the Limited Edition: Physique Magazine Pictures
Physique Magazine Pictures is a series that digs deep into Jonah Samson’s collection of vintage pop culture ephemera – specifically his carefully sourced holdings of rare, midcentury homoerotica. A popular favourite in recent SNAP auctions, Samson generously agreed to make this Limited Edition especially for our dedicated audience, donating three prints each of four different compositions. Due to the nature of the cyanotype process, each of these 12 prints is truly unique, showing subtle variations in each individual artwork.
About the Artist: Jonah Samson
This year’s very special Limited Edition print comes to us from Jonah Samson. Jonah is a self-taught artist who has exhibited nationally and internationally. His exhibition Another Happy Day (2013) at Presentation House, Vancouver was listed as one of the top 10 shows that season by Canadian Art magazine. The book that accompanied Another Happy Day was listed as one of the top releases at the New York Art Book Fair by The New Yorker. A second publication with Presentation House, “Yes, Yes We’re Magicians” was awarded one of the top book design awards in Canada. He has had exhibitions at Macaulay Fine Art, Vancouver; Clint Roenisch Gallery, Toronto; the Musée Eugène Leroy, France; the Museum of Arts and Design, New York and the Sainsbury Centre for Visual Arts in the U.K., among several others, and his work has appeared on the cover of Canadian Art magazine. Samson lives on Cape Breton Island, Nova Scotia. Jonah has generously contributed his work to the SNAP Live Auction in past years.
